We developed a small version of the Caltech active strand cloud water collector (CASCC) for ecological applications. The device is battery powered and thus allows operation at locations where mains power is not available. The collector is designed for sampling periods of up to one week, depending on fog frequency. The collecting efficiency is determined by air speed, number of strands, strand spacing and dimensions. The only free parameter for controlling the collection rate is the number of… CONTINUE READING
